"They're all crooks," my mother is wont to mutter. (Of course, I think she may have voted for McCain. I considered asking her to have a psych evaluation, but confined myself to pointing out that Sarah Palin thinks you can see Russia from Alaska.) (Yes, I know there's some tiny island where it's true. Tina Fey's version is funnier.)
